Kim Kardashian failed her first-year bar exam, dashing her dreams of becoming a civil rights lawyer.
Kim had been studying under a program that substitutes learned experience in a legal setting for classroom experience.
The 40-year-old reality TV star shared the disappointing news in a preview of the next episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians.
The mother-of-four admits she scored 474, but she needed a minimum 560 passing grade on a scale of 800 required to pass the “baby bar”.
In the teaser, released on Wednesday, May 26, Kim breaks the news to her sisters Kourtney and Khloe, saying, “So you guys, I did not pass the baby bar.”
“If you are doing law school the way I’m doing it, it is a four-year program instead of your typical three-year program, and after year one, you have to take the baby bar,” she explains. “This was actually harder, I hear, than the official bar.”
“I am a failure,” she tells her mentor, human rights attorney Jessica Jackson, for whom she is serving as an intern.
Kim said she spent “six weeks straight, 10 to 12 hours a day” studying, which interrupted the time spent with her four minor children.
“I can’t do it again… I could try or I could just give up,” she said, adding that the next test was scheduled for November 2020 (the trailer was filmed in October 2020).
“I didn’t fail by that much,” Kim reasons to her sisters, who insist their late dad, lawyer Robert Kardashian, would have been proud of her “regardless”.
